Let's face it, tree stumps are ugly, and if not removed they can turn into a big problem down the line. That’s why it is imperative that you give Beaumont Tree Trimming and Removal a call today so that we can remove the stump and save you thousands in damages tomorrow. Here are a few reasons why removing your tree stump is very important:
UNSIGHTLY – Tree stumps are not only unsightly, but they take away from your home or business's true beauty and potential. They also take up valuable space; Space that could be utilized in ways that better suit your home or business’s needs. Whether it’s in the front yard or the backyard, tree stumps are unattractive. A freshly made tree stump left untreated can cause ugly regrowth, which just adds to the list of things to have to deal with.
HAZARDOUS – Remember, it’s not what you can see, but also what you can’t see. Connected to that unattractive stump are many long, deep roots that have been known to continue growing for up to seven years after the tree has been cut down. Another hazard is root exposure. Large roots from tree stumps will break through the topsoil just enough to become a tripping hazard while still remaining invisible to the naked eye. We here at Beaumont Tree trimming and Removal think it’s safe to say that many of us have tripped over or rolled our ankles on an exposed tree root that we didn’t see before.
DECAY & DISEASE – Just like a dead or dying tree, tree stumps when left alone will begin to decay and become diseased and spread throughout the remainder of the stump and its roots. This can then spread to other nearby trees and shrubs. When this happens, the results are not immediately noticeable. The disease takes its time to spread throughout the newly contracted trees. Over time its branches will become weak and begin to die. And remember, a dead or dying tree branch can cause serious injury or damage to property.
INSECTS & PESTS – A decaying tree stump is like a large, bright welcome sign for many unwanted insects like carpenter ants, termites, and wood boring beetles. And if your tree stump happens to be near your home or place of business, then that opens the door to other potential problems like termite and wood boring beetle damage to the structure.
EXPENSIVE – Each one of the previous reasons for having your tree stump removed can be costly by itself. So, imagine what would happen if you failed to take care of your tree stump problem early on, and one problem became two problems, and two problems became three, and so on. Remember, in its early stages, you can’t see the decay and disease that is happening inside of the tree. Getting rid of your old or young tree stump is vital to the safety, aesthetics, and value of your home or place of business.
